Telehealth Update Regarding State Employees Covered Under Workers' Compensation
The State of New Jersey (the State) requires State employees covered under the State’s workers’ compensation program to submit a work status note to their supervisors following each medical visit, including telehealth visits. Providers must email a work status note to patients who are State employees following each telehealth visit to ensure that they are compliant with this requirement.
A work status note describes the health care professional’s recommendation for the patient’s treatment needs and ability to return to work. At a minimum, a work status note must include the following key elements:
- Patient's full name
- Date of service
- Work status with restrictions, if any
- Date of next office visit
If you have questions, please contact the Network Relations Department at 1-973-622-0100, Extension 87107 or 45930.
Thank you for your cooperation.
